    WTF, Broccoli?!

    Thought this was one of the better blog entries I've read.
    i woke up one morning and i stepped out of bed | had to get a bike, had to paint it red
    Of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories that are the most precious.

    Arti, that was a singularly horrible blog entry. That you found it appealing has harshed my Foo crush on you. You need to report to the Eye Candy thread to redeem yourself at once.

    Brussel Sprouts is all wrong for you. You need to turn your photoshopping skills to Artichokes.

    It really becomes disturbing when the recipe calls for chopped broccoli.

    negative. Not even butter and garlic can save them.

    I had promised that I would try fresh brussel sprouts. I did try them. They did not give me the urge to dry heave, but I still cannot call them good.

    Especially when you add Hollandaise sauce to the mix.

    Quartered and tossed with Meyer lemon oil and balsamic vinegar with a little bit of garlic and shallot. Bake at 325 for 30 minutes. Finish by topping with a seasoned breadcrumb crumble (breadcrumbs, butter and Asiago cheese) and throw under the broiler until browned.

    well except to jsharr, he'd get all turned on and end up in jail for lewd conduct with vegetables.

    Vicar went to hospital with potato stuck in bottom
    A vicar attended hospital with a potato stuck up his bottom - and claimed it got there after he fell on to the vegetable while naked.

    Last Updated: 2:55PM GMT 31 Oct 2008

    The clergyman, in his 50s, told nurses he had been hanging curtains when he fell backwards on to his kitchen table.

    He happened to be nude at the time of the mishap, said the vicar, who insisted he had not been playing a sex game.

    The vicar had to undergo a delicate operation to extract the vegetable, one of a range of odd items medics in

    Sheffield have had to remove from people's backsides or genitals.

    Others include a can of deodorant, a cucumber, a Russian doll – and a carnation.

    Speaking of the vicar, A & E nurse Trudi Watson, of Sheffield's Northern General Hospital, said: "He explained to me, quite sincerely, he had been hanging curtains naked in the kitchen when he fell backwards on to the kitchen table and on to a potato.

    "But it's not for me to question his story. He had to undergo surgery to have it removed."

    She advised anyone tempted to use such objects in sex games to think again.

    "It can be very dangerous and potentially life-threatening," she said.

    "Surgery can lead to infection, nasty scarring, and it could possibly end up with the person having to use a colostomy bag as a result."

    A hospital trust spokeswoman in Sheffield said: "Like all busy hospitals we do see some unusual accidents.

    "But our staff deal with them in a discreet, professional and kind way."
